Toyota tazz starting to use water no water leaks about 1 litre in about 2 to 3 weeeks

replace the thermostat as it is essential for correct operation. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for leaks in the radiator --rear and sides of the engine and in the cabin around the heater core.. Check radiator cap as it may not be operation correctly and allowing the water to be drawn back into the radiator on cooling down. Check the hose from the reservoir back to the radiator cap as if it is cracked or broken the water will not be drawn back to replace what was pushed out when hot. Have a compression test done to check for gasket and head cracks.

My 1998 Crown Victoria had steamed the passenger side windshield, digital thermostat never indicated that the engine was hot, i smell antifreeze, water leaking inside passenger side by glove box and a

It sure sounds like the heater core, especially if you have water leaking inside the cabin. The two heater hoses only go from the engine to the firewall, and do not go into or through the firewall. They connect to the heater core right at the firewall.
Check carefully around the back side of the engine and the heater hoses, though. If a freeze plug is leaking, water will be dripping off the bottom of the engine. If it is leaking before the firewall, that would not be the heater core.

Water return hose leaking on

Your post got cut off. Leaking on ...what? If the hose is loose, may need to just tighten the hose clamp. If the hose is ruptured, replace the hose.
There are only 2 water return hoses: from heater core to engine, and from radiator to engine- this big hose connects to the water pump on the front of the engine- If it's leaking there, you must determine if it is the hose or the water pump[. If it's the pump it will have to be replaced. Here's hoping it's just the hose. Good luck. Post back for more.

My radiator started leaking and my mechanic said that he replaced the heater coil. What is a heater coil and would it cause my radiator to leak?

Your heater coil is most often located in your vehicle's firewall. To find it, locate your water pump on your engine block and follow the water hoses back to the firewall. Where these hoses end you will find your heater core. To answer your question, no, your heater coil will not cause your radiator to leak. They are two separate units.

Water leaking onto passenger side floorboard,soaking the carpet

Your heater core has developed a leak - the wetness on the passenger side carpet is engine coolant
from a heater core leak, or a leak in one of the two hoses connected to the back of the heater core.
Your strategy: disassemble dash down to heater core, determine whether you'll need a new heater
core or new hose (or new hose clamp), then replace the offending part.

The water pump is in the front of the engine, so probably a heater hose or some ther part of the cooling system. Also, you didn't say which engine but some have a cover in the back of the cylinder head that can leak.

My engine ran low on water and subsequently overheated, since re-filling the water, it now continues to overheat. in a best case senario, i'm hoping it's an air block, can you tell me where the bleed...

If your coolant level dropped you have a leak in the system. Just adding coolant will not solve the problem, as it will continue to overheat. You should have a pressure test done to determine where the leak is. To bleed the system you have to slide back the hose going onto the heater core. At the back of the engine you will see two hoses going thru the fire wall. The hose on the left has a hole in it. Loosen the clamp ,slide the hose back . Add coolant to the system until it flows freely from the hole.Push hose back onto pipe ,tighten the clamp. Start the engine and turn on heater controls to high and run engine until normal operating temp is reached. Stop engine and check coolant level in the expansion tank and add if necessary.
